OK, there are problems confronting the American people, but just gaze south to Venezuela if one wants to witness a nation on the verge of collapse. President Nicola Maduro inherited the presidency from Hugo Chavez and transformed a country which had enormous oil reserves into a basket case of poverty. Children are dying in hospitals because there is lack of medicine. Patients lie on floors and doctors lack equipment for operations. Each day someone from a family must wait in lines for over eight hours to get some food, provided there is food that day. Government workers only toil two days a week because there is no electricity.
So, what has caused this calamity?
According to President Maduro, it is all the fault of the CIA! Last year the people finally elected a Congress that wants to deal with problems. But, Maduro has packed the courts to prevent a referendum. I asked Donald Trump how he would handle this problem. He informed me: “I am a great negotiator,I am so smart,so bright, just give me a few minutes with this Maduro guy and prosperity will return to this nice Hispanic country,and we will finally have a place to send the eleven million illegal immigrants in our country.
